The International workshop on Scalable Massive MIMO Technologies for beyond 5G will take place during IEEE ICC 2020 in Dublin, Ireland, on June 11, 2020. The goal of the workshop is to solicit the recent developments of massive MIMO technologies with a vision of their potential evolvement into beyond 5G and towards 6G. This workshop will bring together academic and industrial researchers to identify and discuss potential use cases, open research problems, technical challenges, and solution methods in this context.
